President Rodrigo Duterte gave his 5th and second-to-the-last State-of-the-Nation Address (SONA) today at the Batasang Pambansa. The president arrived at around 4pm and his speech started promptly after arriving. The speech lasted around an hour and 40 minutes, longer than last year despite Duterte sticking to his script for the most part.
Netizens–including celebrities and public officials–asked after the president’s SONA: Anong plano? [What is the plan?]
Some of the key points people are waiting to hear from the SONA are what are the plans for those who lost their jobs, where is the aid, and what is the plan for COVID-19 cases to decrease among others.
Wala pa ring malinaw na plano.

– less focus on the medical sector and how they can be more empowered and funded
– no concrete plans for next year
– no empowerment of the scientific community on how they can be supported amidst the pandemic
– basically did not address the pandemic that much

Instead of laying down a comprehensive plan for the country to combat COVID-19, the President opened his SONA by assailing his critics and ranting about his personal grudge against the media. Clearly, walang maayos na plano.

Was hoping to hear just 2 things during SONA, a clear cut plan on how government plans to contain COVID cases.
And also a strategic economic recovery plan, particularly on how to manage & cushion the negative effects of COVID to the economy.

Walang kwentang SONA.
Puro yabang at pagpupuri sa sarili at sa mga kawatan nya. Puro paninira sa mga di nya kaalyado.
Asan na mga mas konkretong plano laban sa COVID? Asan ang pag acknowledge at solusyon mo sa mga LSI’s na nagsisiksikan at nanganganib sa Rizal Complex?
